As recently reported, George Michael was sentenced to eight weeks of jail after he pleaded guilty to charges of possession of cannabis and driving the vehicle under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
Therefore, rumors said he had been receiving special treatment in jail, but the pop star declared that he has received “no special treatment of any kind”.
Moreover, the singer added: “Much as I would prefer to rise above the usual rubbish that I’m reading day after day about my time here in prison, I think it’s only fair to my fans, family and friends to respond in some way even though I will be home soon.
“So please believe me when I tell you that in the last three weeks, there have been no tears, no anxiety, no bullying – in fact, not so much as a sleepless night for me.”
The singer, 47, revealed that “kindness” was the word that characterized his “special” prison treatment: “On the contrary, I’ve been treated with kindness by fellow inmates and prison staff alike and, as far as I can tell, have received no special treatment of any kind whatsoever, unless, of course, some of the guys here are letting me win at the pool table.
“Most of my days have been spent reading thousands of letters and post cards of incredible support from people around the world. I promise to repay their kindness with new music as soon as I possibly can.”
Therefore, Michael has been transferred from the Category C Pentonville Prison in north London to the lower Category D Highpoint Prison in Suffolk.
